Would anyone be interested in short programming class that I or anyone competent in programming would teach? It would be a small class with some readings and assignments. I know most of you are busy as so am I so it wouldn't be like University level. But it would be an introduction nerveless maybe a much needed push for some people to start with programming or those who need some structure.

I could teach Actionscript 3, Python or Java (I'm the most proficient with this language).  I know some other languages but I doubt anyone wants to learn something as abstract and mathematical as Haskell or as low level as Assembly.

This is just a post to see how many people are interested and in what language.

I am very interested, and preference of language would be whatever you feel is easiest to teach.

to be honest, Assembly is the one that sounds most interesting to me. hehe

To tell you the truth assembly was amusing but not very useful. It's easy to learn but muddling about in the registers and storing values get boring after a while. At the end of the day you don't even get anything that you wouldn't be able to do in like 30 seconds in a high level language.

how hard was Python as I've heard it's a good lanuage to do before going into C++?

It's pretty easy if you know java or actionscript 3 then there is no point learning python before going to C++ unless you just wanted to  learn another easier language.
